Service providers – IaaS , PaaS and SaaS – that have invested in virtualized infrastructure should plan to look at security as a revenue opportunity and a competitive advantage.
Traditional security doesn’t fit the bill, but new innovations that address the distribution and deployment of security in virtualized environments have the potential to:
Improve performance and minimize in-VM footprint
Provision and streamline security in lockstep with customer needs
Increase margins, due to better security management in the datacenter
